IMHO it started with the fiasco where KU messed with the U or R players in the tunnel. That didn't play out well in Richmond or in VA. U or R is only 5 or 6 miles from VCU and the guys know each other. Do you think there were lots of text messages after VCU beat FL? Then KU trash talked Joey before the game. This stuff might seem insignificant to an elite bunch like you guys but it started the downhill spiral. It's called class and it can help you or hurt you. I would think that any team would want every advantage going into a game of that importance. Review Butler's coach's interview recently concerning the upcoming VCU game on Saturday. Low key, top notch, no ruffled feathers. In fact, he complimented VCU. Coach Self said during the U of R game that "we are already separated" after the reporter asked about the incident in the tunnel. What kind of elitist comment is that? I don't think that comment went over well over here either. Old VCU alum

It just makes me sick that we have to feel like this every year it seems like. Every year we have a great team that has a chance at a NC and all but one year recently it ends in heartbreak. And more often than not it's to a team we would beat 95 of 100 times.......oh well rock chalk!

this loss makes me sick to my stomach. Another game lost to a mid-major that we "should've" won. Same old song and dance (except 2008). We always have players that can't get it done in crunch time. We need to recruit more "shooters" evidently, because 3 point shooting wins tournament games.

I've said it before but hey guys it's frees and threes. If we shoot at or just below our average for those two stats, we win by 10 or so.

Can we not be like KSU fans and blame the refs. Yeah, there were some bad calls against us but we lost the game because we couldn't make shots, and VCU could. It looked painfully familiar to other years.

Yes, VCU was good. Yes, we played terribly. However, can we address the obvious one-sided refereeing??? We were getting hammered every time we drove to the basket. No foul. Meanwhile, we would get called for every little dink foul the refs could conjure.

The NCAA has quite a bit riding on the "Cinderella" team going all the way. They have taken a lot of heat for their decision to add a play-in first round for 4 teams. VCU's ongoing success in the tournament will only silence the naysayers. Who pays the refs?? NCAA. Yeah, that's what I thought. Shame.

tx, you're and idiot. This VCU team is a good team. Weren't you watching? We got beat by a team that has a great chance to win it all. They've proved it. 67 teams go home disappointed. We are among them, sorry to say, but we still had a great year when no one thought we would. Great year team. Keep your heads up!!

'However, we have choked the last 2 years against far inferior teams.' This team was just darn lucky to get this far - let's face the facts!

2 for 21 from 3pt range. Barley 50% from the line. Nothing from the bench. it's amazing that we got back in the game so quickly in the 2nd half only to lose all momentum as soon as we got within a possession. Congrats VCU but KU played TOO hard at times and pressed themselves out of a great chance to capture another title.
